The town of Aurora, Mo is a small/medium sized town with a population of about 7,000. There plenty of places to eat and different parks to go to.
Aurora is the typical small town that has a very country feel. The people are generally nice, yet quiet. This town only has a few businesses, yet we support each other and encourage small businesses. Aurora is the kind of town where everybody knows everybody.
